    [bug!?!?] problems with mail app and gmail

    i have to preserve mail messages on the server because i help people not too experts and i don't want they accidentally loose something, so...
    - tried to use pop3, as in live mail, but after a refresh the previously downloaded messages just disappear from mail app
    - tried to use imap configuring gmail to archive messages when deleted... (push notifications don't work, btw)... and messages go in the trash anyway
    bugs?! any help to have it working?!

    Hi pietro,

    I know the issue that you're describing and I don't think you can set it up to save the emails after they have been deleted from the server, except if you were to archive them. However, you've indicated that's not working out too well.

    The one thing I did was to set up another email account for record keeping only, which was sort of a work-around.

    I have a second email account set up, where I configured Thunderbird to send BCC of all emails to that account, and I set up the incoming server ( in your case Google) to forward copies of all emails to that account too. So, I am able to retain copies of all of my emails.

    The problem is trying to find the ones you need, as the inbox fills up fast. But, at least you have them if need be and the search option helps a bit.
